El Presidente- Have i got some footage for you… I’m from Berlin, Connecticut, and every year our town hosts the Berlin Fair. Last weekend the X-Treme Bull Riders came to put on a show for us. One of the events was the “ring of fire” where contestants pay $20 to get put into a tiny circle and have a live bull charge at them. The last one standing wins the pot of money. Here is some footage of the “bull-dozing.” My husband, Mike, thought you’d be the guy to send it to!
I’ve watched this like 10 times and I swear the guy in the yellow won. Because even though I can’t be 100% sure I think he was in the air when the “winner” was already knocked out cold lying outside the ring. He hadn’t landed yet and I think until you land you’re still considered in the ring right? Therefore I’d request a recount if I were him.
Either way though all these babies can cry me a river with their bitching and moaning. You heard the Berlin Lyons Club spokesman. The contestants signed the waiver. Hell they paid to play the game. I mean what did they think was gonna happen when the bull charged them? Like this would be a pretty dumb game if they got to just sit their unimpeded all night. You don’t want to get gored to death at the Berlin Fair? Simple get out of the ring. Both this lady and the guy in the yellow had a chance to run but they stayed and competed. So don’t cry to me if you tried to win and ended up getting a couple punctured lungs before it. That’s the nature of “Ring of Fire”.
PS – I’ve probably given that exact answer that the Lyons club guy gave 1,000 times when people ask me if I’m worried about getting sued. 20 seconds of silence followed by saying we had no control over it and it had nothing to do with us. Works like a charm.
Double PS – The good news for the Berlin Fair at least nobody got raped by a sausage vendor like at the Topsfield Fair.
